conversations


and Tim said this on the 18th:

There's a storm brewing in the east.
The winds of fate seem to be determined to blow it this way,
This way to you and I.
Evil follows close on its heels,
The evil that is mankind.
Mankind at his lowest common denominator.
I pray I am wrong,
Yet the sound of the church bell tolls in the not so distant future.

and yesterday, this:

That storm is churning westward to show mankind how cruel it can be to one another. A right hook will be devastating, pouring salt into an open, gushing wound.

and today, I finally responded:

I am hoping your preminition is slightly west off target, but wherever it hits, it's scary... I read conspiracy theories using statistical probabilities to suggest it's some man-made phenomenon causing targeted storms to attack US oil reserves and therein shake American life... I read religious dogma suggesting it is god's message to the US for invading Iraq and proving it really was an oil-grab and not some noble WMD search... part of me wants enough people to believe it is a message from god so they might realize that war is wrong no matter how the leaders of the time might justify it... but then, I'm a dreamer...

stay safe, and keep your powder dry...

freaking powder dry, what profane faux-profundity... I am so detached, so disassociated, so numb... lovely Rita, meter maid...

the news crashes through the blood brain barrier as if it has some magic power, some secret key, and yet, by luck or crook or some strange genetic flaw (or pure genius), so much madness survives within the walls of the madhouse between my ears that laughter continues to serenade even as the world dies and dreams dissolve into a hopeless abyss...

and yes, New Orleans is still there... as are our heroes... and the poor are flooded again... but artists are beautiful people...

still, the news is all New Orleans as if rain does not fall anywhere else, as if wind does not reek destruction anywhere else... right here, in this diary, so much of this entry was just lost... blown away by the constant storm that is the OS...

there was so much more, but I shall offer the bits and pieces I can find...

yes, unfortunately, this entry was severely interrupted and mutilated by the criminal Bill Gates as his unreliable product did the only thing it does reliably, which is crash and burn... how could anyone with any serious business acumen expect anything from bancruptcy in the long run from a company that monopolizes a market with such an inferior and corrupted product that every user laughs at and curses it simultaneously and prays for any affordable alternative... but then, what would bankruptcy matter when he's already made more money than a thousand men could spend in a thousand lifetimes...

that is the weakness of capitalism, the short sightedness...

and the selfishness...

and greed...

but to dwell in the flood waters of the darkest night and most corrupt human systems is not the final fate of this singular piece of mankind (who, me?)... and to further such hypotheses, we now present:

Odd Ponderings, Strange Facts, and Random Secrets

and suddenly, talking about the weather is replacing X-Files re-runs...

. . .

kos, perhaps, but then, you probably already know that space fascinates me a whole lot more than the news... and if god, any god, is really out there, then we don't have to do anything but reassure ourself that everything will turn out alright in the end, even if there's no

maybe jeebus will save us...

. . .

people are talking...

I think I'm becoming a fan of scalzi... whatever...

. . .

closer to home, Nicole wants to be an EMT... due to a heartbreaking expense of believing in someone far away (and going to visit for a month, spending all of her savings) and then getting disappointed when he decided she was not the one and returning home to pick up the pieces of life, she's broke... becoming an EMT fits her perfectly because she's got a beautiful wonderful giving heart... but it costs $600 for the course... $600 to turn a life around... can you help?... will you help?... I hope so...

seriously, PO Box 780398, Orlando FL 32878, will you?...


Ernie: hey Bert

Bert: yes, Ernie?...

Ernie: to be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, day in and day out, to make you into everybody else, means to fight the hardest battle that's ever been fought, and never stop fighting.

Bert: e e cummings?

Ernie: yup.

this weekend week the past two three weeks month was my attempt to support The Red Cross by participating in Blogging for Relief... the first entries inspired by this effort and the events in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina can be found here:

1 * 2 * 4 * 6 * 7 * 8 * 9 * 10 * 11 * 13 * 14 * 15 * 16 * 17

18 * 19 * 20 * 21 * 23 * 25 * 911

Hey America...


and you noticed missing numbers, of course you did, you're no fools... the missing numbers are the following entries now dedicated to deliverance (from evil, madness, dirty drawers, and many other things) and respectfully dubbed:

The Mississippi Chronicles
Mess (A Message From Mississippi)
Hope (Hope Grows in Mississippi)
Anger (Anger and Angst in Mississippi)
Sigh (A Sigh From Mississippi)
Rant (A Rant From Mississippi)
Pain (Pain In Mississippi)
Rage (Rage For Mississippi)

or Messages From Mississippi because they were mostly guest entries to pass along email from a friend who witnessed Mississippi first hand cuz he lives there... bless him and his family, in fact, do it yourself...



find someone touched by the events of the past week and share some love...



and then go tell Michael and Tim and our own DLand Michael something good J
